Bell flower sculptures made with orange and green paper

Craft Sunday: Botanical Sculptures with Natalia Manczak

Duration: 4h
Dates: Sun 28 Apr 2024 12:00 - 16:00
Location: Meeting Room

Spend a fun and creative afternoon creating paper flowers with paper sculptor Natalia Manczak. 

Drawing on her Polish roots, Natalia puts a modern twist on traditional folk crafts. At each stage of the process, she ensures that the materials she is using are eco-friendly, sustainable or fully recyclable. Paper is one of Natalia’s favourite materials due to its versatile properties and endless creative possibilities. 

We’re excited to welcome Natalia back for another afternoon of crafting where she’ll show you how to make your very own bellflowers from the best Italian crepe paper. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have some beautiful, handcrafted flowers to take home and the skills to continue making more at home. 

As always, we’ll have plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits to help fuel your making during this fun afternoon of crafts.
